Wrapping Up 2016

All in fun, there is always a wrap up of the year’s highlights, this is what comes to mind, feel free to add to the list:

You missed the "Predator" Audiopile Speakers from the Drumpfk Symphonic Bombast Corp.
Hey randy, sorry and yes the Predators slipped my mind, just an oversight.  Thinking of ponying up $600+K to put the wamms in my den.   Bdp24, I hear you, think the same.  I'm not sure whether it was more people passing in 2016, or just being more aware because they were closer to our (at least my) age.  I prefer to think us boomer's are coming to the last two decades of our time on the planet.    

Don't worry be happy.

I'll split the difference with you George, and say 15 years ;-). If I live that long, I'll be older than my Dad made it to, and he was of a much heartier generation, that of WWII.
Hi bdp,
I will gladly split the difference with you for 15 years.

Today, sorry to hear about Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia, meeting our maker.  The scene in Star Wars where she is holographed out was just spectacular, to us sci-fi fans.

Happy New Year to all, party on,
